Structural formulas of purine and pyrimidine nitrogenous bases of DNA and RNA, illustration, vector, isolated on white


This diagram was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Aromatics Library from the Chemistry Solution. An experienced user spent 5 minutes creating this sample. This sample shows the structural formulas of PAH (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons) compounds, which contain organic molecules of carbon and hydrogen and are composed of multiple aromatic rings.

The basic building block of DNA is called a NUCLEOTIDE. A nucleotide is made up of one sugar molecule, one phosphate molecule and one of the four bases. Here is the structural formula for the four nucleotides of DNA. Note that the purine bases (adenine and guanine) have a double ring structure while the pyrimidine bases (thymine and cytosine) have only a single ring. This was important to Watson and Crick because it helped them figure out how the double helix was formed.
